presidency. all that being said, though, the thing that i found very interesting since the republicans came into power in the house in 2010 has been the lack of communication between speaker boehner, president obama, cantor, biden. they've had some conversations, but obama doesn't call boehner regularly. they don't socialize. they had that golf meeting. they tried to get the debt deal together. that sort of went away. i suspect if you have a president obama getting re-elected, you will see a lbj-style sort of trying to work the other side, work from congress. if there's anything he could have learned from the mistakes of his first term, that would be it. but this idea that republicans are go sing, that's not going to happen. the real interesting thing, though, is this decision. if mitt romney loses, will republicans say it's because we weren't conservative enough or that we weren't center enough? i suspect they'll say they weren't conservative enough, go another cycle l in that direction. >> that sounds like a terrible future. all right. thank you very much. >> thanks, guys.
